Weddings Make Me Want To Get Married

The day after I arrived back in Toronto, I attended the wedding of a family friend.  It's so crazy to think that the people I grew up with are all getting married and starting their "real" lives.  In no way do I feel ready to be anyone's wife, but I have to admit that every time I go to a wedding, it makes me want it a little bit more.

I've never really enjoyed being the center of attention, so the thought of a big wedding never appealed to me.  I just felt like it would be too nerve wracking having all of those eyes on you, prying into your private affairs.  Considering the fact that I come from an enormous family though, small weddings aren't really an option!  Seriously, my side of the family alone could fill a church.  

This wedding made me appreciate the grandeur of such an occasion.  It really is a beautiful thing to have so many people come out and celebrate with you.  You could just feel that everyone was so genuinely happy for the young couple and it makes me think that maybe being the center of attention for just one day isn't so bad.  The dancing/music was incredible and I hadn't had that much fun in a long time (probably not since my sister's wedding last May) .... so it's official: I must really love weddings!

That day still isn't on the horizon for me but when it does arrive, I'm sure it will be big and beautiful.  I really am thankful to have so many people in my life that will be there to celebrate with me.


  1. OMG I did not know you and Vanessa @ Grace And Gratitude know eachother. So funny, I just visited her website and I was like wait a minute...are these the same pics from the same wedding? Haha. Both of you girlies are stunning and the bride is a beauty!

    And you're right! Weddings just put you in such a great space! It always makes me appreciate family even more!

  3. so much fun!

    i completely agree - at this point, i want a wedding.
    i'm not sure if i'm ready for a marriage though....


  4. Can I get a wedding a skip the marriage part too?
    Kidding. It was such a beautiful wedding. I love all the Ghanaian traditions.

  5. You know what's funny, a few years ago, you couldn't get me to say that one day I was going to change my mind about wanting to get married. Perhaps it was because of hurt that I endured, but now.. I often dream of the day. I wonder who I'm going to marry. I guess it's because I've attended so many. LOL! What's meant to be will be.

    Such lovely photos. It looks like you guys had a great time!

  6. Exactly how I feel. Cant see myself having such a big wedding. Family and friends come, they eat on you and then they go home. Party over. lol I am so running down to the justice of peace. The bride looks absolutely gorgeous though.

    1. Big weddings definitely aren't for everyone, but as long as you're happy and comfortable on your special day .. that is all that matters!


I love reading your comments and I always make an effort to respond to each and every one of them :)
